California's recent foie gras ban, PETA is recognizing California food producer
Rau Om for its acclaimed tofu
misozuke, a miso-cured and aged creamy tofu that multiple food critics

and already appears on Bay Area restaurant menus. For its cruelty-free cuisine,
the company will receive PETA's Better Than Foie
"Rau Om gives Californians a taste of the possibilities
for fine dining beyond the diseased liver of an abused bird," says PETA
Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "PETA is confident that Rau Om's

Foie gras (fatty duck or goose liver) is produced by
force-feeding ducks and geese until they fall ill with hepatic steatosis, which
causes the liver to become painfully engorged. Investigations at foie gras
farms have documented birds with holes in their necks from feeding-pipe
injuries, and many birds have been found who were unable to walk because of
painful, untreated injuries. Foie gras production is so cruel that it has been
banned in more than a dozen countries, including Germany, Israel, and the U.K.
